    Sorry the update didn't come as planned. Here's the final results.....
    Pup #7 arrived at 3:05am, followed by a lack of continuing contractions. We planned on waiting till 7am to call the vet, since Hlin was in no distress whatsoever, before we gave her an oxytocin injection. We palpated what felt like 1 very LARGE puppy followed by 1 or 2 more behind. We didn't want to give her the shot only to have this rather large pup get lodged, or worse yet, rupture her uterus! Anyway, the vet called us at 6:45 to check in on her progress from the night before. Off we go to the 'on call' vets office, over an hour away!
    Andy, Hlin, all 7 pups and I arrived at the vets office just after 8am. The first thing we did was x-ray to discover that there was NOT 1 large pup as thought, but rather 2 pups in a 69 position. So, we gave her the shot and Andy and I went to work. Since Hlin had started her delivery with an afterbirth unattached to a puppy, we now had to get the 'true' pup #1 removed. Yes, puppy #8 was our stillborn that had blocked the works all night. Apparently all of the other pups had to get past this one to make it to delivery. Anyway, with a LOT of manual assistance from Andy and I, the final 3 were born! That's right. NO SURGERY!!!
    We now have 9 beautiful black puppies (3 boys and 6 girls). Our lost pup was another black little girl. It would appear that Hlin is now my second dominant black dog!!! Just what every breeder needs to keep that rich, dark mahogany going!
    As for our contest, the sad, uncertified winner is Paul. Too bad he didn't post his guess in the thread, but, rather in the chat room. He actually guessed 7f/3m. The actual winner though is Jess (MarineGeeksWife) with her guess of 10 pups. Thank ALL of you for joining in Hlin's adventure! Pics to be posted in another thread.....
